It’s the end of August and you know what that means? It’s time to start getting ready for Halloween!
Halloween is without a doubt my favorite holiday and always has been. My poor mom thought she was going to have a kid that craved a Norman Rockwell style Christmas with sugar plum fairies, fake snow, and wholesome carols. Instead she got a kid with an obsession with the macabre, dressing up as ghoulish creatures, and a penchant for gutting and carving scary faces into any fruit or squash she got near. Yes, pumpkins are a fruit. Now I love Halloween more than ever and the only thing more fun than that holiday is getting prepared for it.
On episode 40 of Super Geeked Up, one of the round table questions was which superhero or super villain would we want as our parents. My answer was Batman. Now, I know what you’re thinking — but SPQ, he’ll just be neglectful or he’ll turn you into a Robin or you’ll probably end up dead or badly beaten up down the line. The truth is the reasons I chose him was not well thought-out and are pretty much right on the very shallow surface of the entire situation.
